just asking for it?

i’m still not quite sure how people can manage to blame women for rape time and time again.

when a woman is raped, i think the last thing we should be asking is - how much did she have to drink? who was she with? what was she wearing? that has nothing to do with it.

a man can rape me if i’m wearing a burka or fish nets and a bra - it’s still rape, and it’s still his fault.

maybe we should stop trying to protect men from false accusations and start protecting women from a lifetime of fear [and false accusations].
